    Paperback Ï Midwives PDF/EPUB Ì midwives mobile, Midwives eBookI’ve had Midwives Chris Bohjalian’s fifth novel on my to read list for uite a while but I resisted reading it until now because of some personal baggage my only son was born perfectly healthy in a hospital; but the labour was prolonged resulting in life threatening complications that brought me back to the hospital in isolation for almost three weeks during which I was not even allowed to hold my own newborn child Midwives is a story about a pregnancy that goes wrong but not in a hospital in a home The novel is mainly told through the eyes of Connie the daughter of midwife Sibyl Danforth Each chapter begins with an entry from Sibyl’s diary Connie’s narration does reuire a degree of concentration from the reader Bohjalian takes us back and forward in time from C

    Paperback Ï Midwives PDF/EPUB Ì midwives mobile, Midwives eBookI LOVED this book which was totally unexpected It was absolutely riveting for me There wasn't a slow part in it I really enjoyed the organization with the journal entries and the tone associated with the author's reflections kind of if only It made the whole book feel like you were hearing an exciting story first hand where the story teller felt compelled to add little bits of insight or extra information along the way to help enhance your experience I really enjoyed how it begins and especially how it ends WHAT AN ENDING Makes

    Paperback Ï Midwives PDF/EPUB Ì midwives mobile, Midwives eBookSo the Washington Post Book World says that this will keep readers up late until the last page is turned I started the book this morning and only had hopes that it'd be as good as the last few books I've read Didn't think I'd do all 370 pages today LOLI guess depending on how you feel about midwives and home births you could view this book as an injustice upon Sibyl or an injustice against the woman who died Personally I feel that a woman has the choice as to whether she wants a home birth or a hospital birth It's her body and if she wants the baby at home fine But if there's a medical problem then the hospital is the place to go But I understand that things happen I'm getting worked up about this and I know it's a work of fiction But I know women have been prosecuted and tortured for being midwives It's an Oprah Book Club book of course it's going to bring up opinions Don't a great deal of her choices do So yes A thought provo
